- Description: This is a beautiful Joseph Rodgers & Sons traditional, clip point, Bowie Hunting knife with stag horn handle and German silver guard, scabbard tip and throat. The knife measures 10 1/4 overall with a 6 single edged clipped point blade. The ricasso is marked ''J. Rodgers & Sons / 6 Norfolk St. / Sheffield, England'' on the reverse face. The blade is near excellent, showing a mirror-bright polish with a near-razor sharpened edge, light polishing and sharpening marks along the lengths and tiny isolated specks of smoky gray patina at the tip and on the spine. The nickel silver double guard and stag grips are unblemished except for a bit of yellow tint in the metal and two small 1/8 cracks on the top and bottom of the left side that run with the grain of horn. The russet leather sheath shows a similar tint in the nickel silver mounts, otherwise only the lightest of handling marks and tight complete stitching, rating excellent overall. A popular import from the turn of the century, these hunting knives are not often found in such attractive condition.
